Pacific Green Party of Oregon calls for a Real Green New Deal

The Pacific Green Party of Oregon today called for a "Real Green New Deal" that addresses not only the climate crisis but also the corporate control of our government and economy.

Green Party of Virginia responds to President Trump’s State of the Union Address

RICHMOND, VA - Since the previous State of the Union address, our country has continued to move in the wrong direction.

Stein / Baraka in Solidarity with Venezuela and Maduro!

High Springs, FL – "I stand in solidarity with the people of Venezuela!" says Robin Harris, co-chair of the Green Party of Florida, in response to the U.S. government's latest maneuvers to depose the democratically elected President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, and bring in a right-wing regime that would hand over that country's mineral wealth to the powerful oligarchs that are still a dangerous force in that country under siege.
